California implemented a new law, Pay on Death Deeds, effective January 1, 2016.
If you only have real property in California, you could decide to create a new deed, that allows your heir(s) to inherit upon your passing. Beforehand, this could not be done. You could place a person’s name as a joint tenant but that was actually giving them title. This new law allows someone to inherit, but only after you pass away.
Please call to set up a conference with the elder law attorney, Valerie M. Logsdon. Please do not attempt to do this yourself.
